I am a caretaker for an 82 year old male that has just been prescribed this antbiotic. I crush his evening pills but this comes in a capsule as does one of his medicstions. So I grind them and empty the capsule of powder into the rest and I want to empty the cephalexin on the rest for him to swallow. Is it ok
Yes. You can mix it in something like applesauce. He will need something the powder tastes awful.
